There is no universal definition for the term resilience. The term has been used in a number of contexts to describe the ability of a system to not only adapt, but also recover from adversity.  Admittedly, comprehending the concept of resilience is considered contextual besides varying amid disciplines. There are a number of approaches to resilience. However, these approaches to a large extent depend on the capability of either the community or an individual to adapt to hardship or a misfortune in a positive way.  When examined in a broader context, resilience is considered a process whose method of measuring is regarded as a complicated process of subjectivity.

According to Kahan, Allen and George (2009), the concept of national resilience is considered a significant goal of the Department of Homeland Security in the United States of America.  Before DHS came into existence, the term resilience was used to describe outcomes linked to traditional mitigation projects. Initially, the concept of resilience in homeland security was used in the context of providing protection to America’s infrastructural facilities.  The infrastructural facilities that were considered critical in the land were enhanced to be able to resist pressure, as well as, rebound from stress. This study assesses the differences in the application of resiliency at the federal, state, and local levels of government.
